Coach Lamb said, “We hope to build upon the foundation set from the previous season as well as continue to improve as a team. We’re looking for our players to show dedication, to be committed, to have a good work ethic and play unselfishly.”

Last year’s group finished with the most wins (8) in a single season since 2014-15 (13-11). Fifteen of Liberty’s 24 games a year ago were decided by 10 points or less (6-9), including their sectional championship loss to LaBrae (52-50). In each of the last six years, the Leopards have had 16 losses or more.
